Vintage plate from the Salvation Army

My enjoyment of a vintage plate is inversely proportional to how much I paid for it. That is to say, the less I pay, the more I like it. And so I *love* this plate I found at the Salvation Army Thrift Store in Carrollton, one of the places my aunt likes to shop and where I'm now a regular.

It has a lot of crazing, which just adds character, but otherwise this pretty rose-rimmed plate was just perfect.

I realized a while back that buying thrift store castoffs is a great way to gussy up food gifts. I like this plate a lot, though, so it remains to be seen whether anyone's Christmas cookies will be delivered on it this year!

The backstamp says it was made by the Edwin M. Knowles China Co. I've been unable to determine a date or pattern name, but considering the price, I'm more than happy with my new plate!


  1. So pretty! And at a great price.

  2. It is nice, and you bought it for a good price.

  3. Beautiful find. Great price, too.

  4. My friends and I stopped at a resale shop yesterday after leaving O'Mara's but we didn't have your luck. We all left empty handed, but had fun looking.

  5. Very pretty and perfect for Christmas cookies.
